Always late to the party. I can remember the first four, then a little hazy on what order they came in.

1. The Byrds - with Clarence White. August 9, 1969 Charleston Civic Center, Charleston WV.
2. Melanie - Feb. 19, 1972 - Capitol Theater, Passaic NJ
3. Doctor John - The Night Tripper & NRPS - April 1972 Capital Theater NJ
4. Summer Jam - Watkins Glen NY.

I've asked this in other postings but I'll do it again.
Do you have any crowd photos of the Watkins Glen concert?
Not the bands, the crowd.
Many long gone friends were there but no one had a camera.
If you do have them please post them somewhere.

I was the guy with long brown hair. I think I was wearing a flannel shirt.

Man, I'm sorry, but it appears I was like the other half a million people without a camera. But I had wine and weed. I was the guy in the blue Volkswagen. Remember me?

Here are some home movies of the crowd. Might see someone you know.
